Geodesign for Trail-Based Tourism: A Regional Case Study in Post-Industrial Pennsylvania

This study uses the geodesign framework to design regional and local trail systems, using material culture as a sustainable economic driver. The economic decline of post-industrial towns in Southwestern Pennsylvania is well documented. The communities comprising this region must reckon with changing landscapes and infrastructure, issues geodesign is well suited to address. However, the region is defined by the organization of life resulting from the material relations of the once-prosperous American steel industry. These hauntological properties are identified and exploited as catalysts for post-industrial heritage and trail-based tourism using the geodesign process.
